Ministry Of Education Celebrates – National Robotics Team


The Ministry of Education and Sports under the leadership of the Honorable Daryll Matthew, celebrates the achievements of Teyanna Nathaniel (Team Leader), Ethan Bailey (Engineer), Deshini Charles (Programmer) and Leyla Reid (Designer) – four students who would have competently and skillfully represented Antigua and Barbuda at the 2022 FIRST Global Challenge held in Geneva, Switzerland. The focus of this year’s robotic challenge was, “Carbon Capture.”

As one of the highlights during its inaugural STEM Infused Summer Camp, the Ministry of Education would have enrolled our 200 students and afforded the opportunity for capacity building in the following areas – Computer Assembly, Coding, Photography, Videography, Graphics Design, Mobile App and Web Development, Esports, Robotics, 3D printing and Virtual and Augment Reality.

Having seen the enthusiasm of the students in the area of robotics, the Ministry would have invested a sum of Twenty-Seven Thousand Eastern Caribbean Dollars towards the realization of the team travelling to Geneva to participate in this year’s FIRST Global challenge.

The Ministry is committed to the needed curriculum transformation which creates the authentic learning experience for each student.

The Ministry also commits to building the needed skills for the future, so that the current students, the next iteration of the workforce, can be fully equipped to negotiate the emerging jobs.

  1. Sounds like fun. Congrats to the students who participated. It’s nice that they were trying to make use of robotics to help solve important world problems.

    Congratulations! Now what will you do with your talents and gifts? Continue to move in the right direction on the road of STEM – the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics – and business!
    Everything in life is related to STEM and business! Apply the knowledge mixed with your talents and entrepreneurial spirit, as career choices, in the vast possibilities of data collection and analysis, food production, health/healthcare, environment, oceanography, sports, energy, transportation, construction, to start and build business enterprises and get things done to produce something of value.

    Our education system MUST PRIORITIZE STEM and business curriculum powered by our OECS and Caricom creative Arts (consciousness) in EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL and INSTITUTION year-round, in school, after school activities, summer.

    Our economic growth and social development REQUIRE that transformation to STEM and business principles, Pre-K to Tertiary, from the colonial education for elite management and unskilled labor.

    Save our Humanity, Save our Youths, Save our Environment, Save our Soil!!!!
